Autoduplicity is Jennifer Bewerse and Rachel Beetz, a cellist and flutist dedicated to performing contemporary and avant-garde music. Rachel and Jennifer created Autoduplicity to explore performance beyond sound-making for highly trained instrumentalists, to explore musical ideas and the bodies that inhabit them, and to find what this exploration might illuminate when done as a duo. Their concerts are carefully constructed as musical, ideological, political, or theoretical explorations probing themes of blurred identities and realities, the physicality of sound, the movements of our bodies, and the rhythms of our speech.
Game Night, a collaboration between Autoduplicity and Synchromy, will create a flippant frame for a playful musical experience. The audience will find themselves both observing and interacting with Game Night, connecting us all to the child within.
